Fresh-Cut Flower Care
Strip it Down
Carefully remove your flowers from the packaging. If it is not your first delivery, your stems will arrive in a bag of water. Remove the bag over the sink, but do not cut the hand-tie wire.
Fill it Up
Fill your vase with room temperature water. Stir the plant food package, included with your delivery, into the water.
Give them a Cut
Hold your stems up to your vase to asses your desired stem length, then cut the stems at a 45 degree angle. Quickly place them into your vase of water. Fun Fact: Flower stems seal when they are not in water in less than 10 seconds. Once sealed, they cannot drink and die quickly. Make sure to cut your stems, and place them quickly into water for long lasting blooms.
Keep the Love Coming
Flowers do best when they are tended. Do not place them in direct sunlight or near a vent in your home. Also make sure to check their water regularly, they love getting a fresh cut and water every two days.

Take it Off
Take off any packaging that is on your beautiful orchid.
Give it a place
Place your orchid near a window, orchids love indirect sunlight! Make sure not to place it near a vent in your home as the drastic temperatures are not good for the plant.
Spread the Water
There are two ways to water your orchid - the ice cube trick works like a charm. Place an ice cube on your orchid's pot once a week. It provides just the right amount of cold water for your plant. The other option is the way that the pros water their orchids. Take the orchid out of its decorative pot (you will be left with the plastic interior planter). Bring it to the sink and run room temperature to cool water through your orchid for one to two minutes. Let the plant drain completely before you repot it. Make sure to water the orchid only once a week.
